We’ve seen a lot of unlikely animal friendships. Dogs and elephants. Cats and foxes. Even giraffes and ostriches. However, nothing comes close to seeing an American black bear, an African lion and a Bengal tiger living together in harmony.

Baloo the bear, Leo the lion and Shere Khan the tiger have spent the last 15 years peacefully coexisting at Noah’s Ark Animal Shelter in Georgia
Known as the BLT, they were rescued in 2001 from the basement of a house in Atlanta during a police drug raid.
They were kept in the basement in terrible conditions, and Baloo had to have surgery to remove an ingrowing harness that hadn’t been adjusted as he’d grown.
That was the only time the trio has ever been separated, however, and they’ve spent every happy day together since.
